Why is it bad to find bullets in the laundry?

Isn’t it time for you to get back to college? Don’t you have some books to buy or some roommate to charm?

Bullets are just another reason I am done with other people’s laundry.

The archaeology of doing laundry lost its charm for me some time in the last 20 years and I don’t ever expect it to come back, even for grandchildren.

I no longer care to wonder if the pulpy lump in a pocket was previously an important piece of paper, or if the feathers are from a live thing or a “specimen.”

No more mystery sand in winter months or chewing gum or clay blobs  that might signal a ruined towel or five.

Hopefully never again will I uncover a mate-less earring that should have been tucked away safely with the rest of my jewelry.

Plunging a hand into a machine only to be met with sharp objects or things that might, under the proper conditions, go boom is not for me.

I will miss all the soggy cash, but it was never enough.

Love,
yermom
